“The greatest jazz show in town”
Wall Street Journal

The fearsomely talented Django Festival Allstars are back by popular demand with the high-energy “hot jazz” stylings of legendary Gypsy guitarist Django Reinhardt. This internationally acclaimed ensemble is comprised of Samson and Amati Schmitt (guitar), Gino Roman (bass), Francko Mehrstein (rhythm guitar), Ludovic Beier (accordion), and Pierre Blanchard (violin). If Django were around today, this is what he’d play.
